Lithoscapes is a library of acoustical Impulse Response recordings made at a number of important geological sites found within the Kent Downs AONB. At each location a sound recording was made of a balloon being popped. This sonic information is processed to create a reverb effect, encapsulating the acoustic space, so that it can be reproduced and applied to other sounds. The web app allows the user to compose patterns of sound to play into their chosen lithoscape.

A room tone recording made in 2019 while on artist residency at Church Walk, Aldeburgh, former home of Imogen Holst – daughter of Gustav Holst, composer, conductor, arranger, musicologist, and assistant to Benjamin Britten. The modest kitchen, where Imogen could famously ‘only cook eggs’, is set within a 1960s modernist bungalow designed by H.T. Cadbury-Brown.
In response to the question “What’s happening, exactly?” posed by Folkestone Fringe, and as part of the MagiC Carpets platform, Pent Happenings comprises a series of audio-visual artworks, workshops and events drawing on field studies, geo-scientific data and research concerning Folkestone’s Pent stream and its environs.
The Pent stream descends from the chalk hills of the Folkestone downs and meets the sea at Folkestone Harbour. En route it flows between and beneath properties in the district of Foord – a community which has experienced extreme flooding on at least four occasions in the past 120 years.
